a lot of hot button issues. >> yeah. the most recently retired justices were john paul stevens went out at 90. david souter 69, sandra day o'connor 75. is there a tradition of when justices usually retire, be it age, or time served? >> well, they're like most human beings. a lot of factors weigh in. there is -- there was a tradition where justices would tend to retire during the term of a president that was at the same party that appointed them. but we know neither justices souter nor stevens did that. they were both republican employees and went out during president obama's term. life circumstances can drive retirement decisions. so it's really not scientifically predictable or politically predictable. >> do you see any most likely candidates if another seat opens up under president obama? >> you know, i think if president obama, first of all, justice ruth bader ginsburg i think the pressure to replace her with another woman appointee would be enormous. we've made progress in getting a third of the court female and i don't think president obama or any president would want to go backwar

is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament

braechz, and attacks in libya leading up to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. for example, stevens, they say, took regular early morning jogs around tripoli with members of the security detail, but according to their sources, a pro-gadhafi facebook page trumpheted those runs, posting a threat against the ambassador along with a stock photo of him. stevens stopped running for about a week. then resumed. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless, and he took the advice always of his security forces, including sometimes when they said that meetings needed to be canceled, so i think that this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security, and a failure of judgment, but not of the now diocesed ambassador. >> there were other security braechz, according to the committee and a sale that blew a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission. two rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and the convoy carrying the british ambassador was attacked by a militant with a grenad

, the al-qaeda conspiracy to kill ambassador stevens and the three brave hero colleagues in benghazi. so they are getting -- the libyans have a pretty fair idea of who did this. >> brian: you like the pace of this? >> the pace of it is frustrating. i am bitterly frustrated by the snail's pace of it. but you know, they did not want to compound the tragedy by sending the f.b.i. in there and getting one of them snagged or one of them killed. >> steve: there were documents all overt floor! >> the cnn reporters and others did a fine job of going through the remains there and taking ambassador stevens' notebook and everything else and so forensically, the site has already been compromised to a great extent. but the investigation is proceeding. we know and will know who did this. the question then becomes much more complex, what do you do about it? now you have this bubble, pro-american sentiment in libya. you have the anti-militia demonstrations going on. how do we attack now the people who did this to our people without turning that -- >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions because it was

in a region where it's been very volatile. these are bureaucratic decisions. and ambassador stevens made the decision to go to benghazi. what problem may emerge here, he went to benghazi with inadequate security. we have to understand that our embassies are not protected and our ambassadors are not protected by the marines or by u.s. personnel all the time. they're protected by the local government officials that provide that security. and chris was known as someone who didn't like the envelope of security around him. i think the real issue here is not so much whether or not the president or the administration was at fault, but whether or not the senior management level at the state department did not do their job adequately to make sure that chris was adequately protected going into a zone that was clearly -- all of us knew was dangerous from the get go. after all, the british ambassador had just come under attack in benghazi a month and a half before chris lost his life >> yes. how do americans separate the facts from politics though, mark, in these kinds of situations from either side

paul stevens administered the oath in the east room of the white house. tomorrow is the start of the new term of the supreme court and it's shaping up to be an important one for civil rights. toor more we turn to nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. >> this supreme court term may be one of the most important in decades for civil rights. with the potential for blockbuster decisions on race and same-sex marriage. the court will examine the widespread practice of considering the race of students who apply for college. the case brought by a white high school senior, abigail fisher who said affirmative action kept her out of the university of texas. >> i always thought from the time i was a little girl that any kind of discrimination was wrong and for an institution of higher learning to act this way makes no sense to me. >> the university says it considers race as one factor in administrations to achieve a racially diverse campus. >> one of the greatest advantages of having a diverse student environment is it breaks down stereotypes and promotes cross-racial understandin
